Forsythia flower shortage
can anyone tell me the rules with regards to pruning Forsythia? i have a large bush that was here when we moved in 18 months ago. it was absolutely stunning last spring absolutely dripping with bright yellow flowers, i waited until the flowers all finished and then cut it back hard, as it was getting a bit unrully and thought that this was the right time to do it - just after flowering. it has grown back lovely all through last summer and is now a nice shape, it has had plently of work done on the soil, so should be very happy - but the flowers are very dissapointing! would this be because i cut back at the wrong time - or maybe it is 'sulking' because i was so drastic with it's hair cut?
